What would you guys recommend? I heard AVG was good before but has gone downhill.

Free antiviruses are bad. Sure they kinda do the job, but really when you get a virus, it can't do s*** to get rid of it.

I got rid of AVG after years as it did nothing but give me popups.

if you're cheap you'll just stick with windows defender, ublock origin, malwarebytes, and not visit any shady websites, but hey that's just me...

If you're on Windows then just stick with Defender.

I'm fine with Windows defender. As long as you don't pirate s*** or download garbage software, you're fine with defender.

Windows 10 comes with one. And it works just fine.
